What did you get for Christmas?

Star-Wars-Christmas-5

No, Christmas isn’t about the presents, but they’re a fun part. There’s a great feeling to be found in presenting a loved one with something that makes them smile. I still remember the way BratzBasher’s face lit up when she unwrapped a brand new, pink and white winter coat years ago (back when she still thought pink was cool). She hugged that coat tight and wore it most of the day — even indoors. I remember another Christmas even further back when Mom unwrapped that brand new mixer from Dad. She actually cried. Her old mixer had long ago broken down, and she’d missed it more than we’d realized. (Note to husbands everywhere: normally you should never buy your wife something that plugs in or reinforces a traditional female gender role, but there are exceptions to that rule.)

So do you have a special gift or memory of a gift, given or received? Please share it in the comment section.

    Being with friends is the greatest gift, but I do have some treasured ornaments ❤ I remember the last doll my mom gave me, dressed in clothes she made. She said she knew I was getting too old to want a doll, so she wanted that one to be special.
    Merry 2nd Day of Christmas to you. ❤
